You might want to stay indoors this weekend as very strong winds will strike the UK with Storm Ciara.

The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning with gusts of very strong wind up to 60mph for this weekend (February 8 and 9).

Storm Ciara is expected to bring disruptions across the UK in the weekend and the wind is expected to range from 50 to 60mph around inland areas, while hills or coastal areas could see winds as high as 80mph.

Saturday should be a fairly dry day despite strong winds by 6pm, but the Sunday is likely to have heavy rain alongside the winds throughout the entire day.

You can expect a lot of traffic disruption as there could be delays to road, rail, air and other forms of public transport.

Houses and other buildings could be at risk of damage such as tiles being blown off from roofs.

The Met Office also warns that some roads and bridges could close due to the storm and there could potentially be short-term loss of power and other services such as mobile phone coverage.

This comes just three weeks after Storm Brendan struck the UK in January and Storm Ciara is the third storm of the season which started in September.

Neil Armstrong, Met Office chief forecaster, said: “An extremely strong jet stream flowing from North America will be steering a succession of low-pressure systems towards the UK at least into the middle of next week.

“The relative predictability of this pattern has provided an early warning and has given us the certainty to be able to name this storm four days ahead.

“The Met Office will continue to monitor the development of Storm Ciara and other potentially impactful low-pressure systems through next week.

“Warnings will be issued and amended as appropriate so members of the public should keep up to date with the Met Office forecast via our website, app or by following us on social media.”
